Cheese and biltong muffins recipe

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Baking time: 20 minutes

Oven temperature: 180°C


1 large egg

200ml amazi (sour milk)

250ml cake flour

10ml baking powder

large pinch of salt

8 piquanté peppers (peppadews), sliced

50g beef biltong powder

375ml grated Cheddar cheese


1. Beat the egg lightly in a jug. Add the amazi and stir to combine.

2. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together. Add to the amazi mixture.

3. Add the piquanté peppers, biltong powder and half the cheese. Don't overmix, the batter will still be a bit lumpy.

4. Spoon into lined muffin tins until they are two-thirds full. Top with the remaining cheese. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Serve warm or cold.
